Pic Special: Faro Farewell
Having enjoyed a hugely successful tour of the Algarve, Newcastle's players trained for the final time under the Portuguese sun before returning to Tyneside on Tuesday evening.
Despite the warm weather, Alan Pardew, John Carver and Steve Stone made sure the players were working hard as the season proper moves ever nearer, while Andy Woodman kept his goalkeepers busy too.
It'll certainly be a culture shock when the lads return to Benton after six days of glorious weather but working up a sweat in such intense heat will do the players' fitness no harm at all when the Barclays Premier League campaign gets underway.
